[Pro] Center Graphics & Hype 3

I’m new to Freeway Pro. I have been playing around with Hype 3. I created a simple one-page website using Hype: Everblaze. Hype allows you to create different layouts based on device size breakpoints.

I’m trying to recreate this page using Freeway. I was able to get a background graphic to to fill the full width/height of the browser window. However, I can’t figure out how to get the logo PNG to stay in the center of the browser window. The text I am adding is also in PNG format and needs to be centered on the page.

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

I’m also curious if anyone has experience creating Hype elements and incorporating them into Freeway.

With FW7 you can adjust items positioning and size at differing breakpoints.

Centering an html container is usually achieved by inserting it inline and adjusting the Margin to Auto - similarly for an Html container containing text. FW7 allows you to adjust text size at different Breakpoints too.

You are always better to use ‘real’ text instead of unfriendly to Search Engines Graphic text.

Thanks. Is there any documentation on how to adjust the positioning at
different breakpoints? And how to have an element always centered on a page
despite the window width?

I assume, same layout - adjusted to different sizes to be more precise.

7.1+ required:

Create a page. Center this page. Apply an image to the window background dialogue. Play with the settings e.g. center/center and cover. Place items on your page and play with those settings as well. Basically they will stay center cause they’re child-items of the page (PageDiv). This should take you just a minute, so ten times faster than me writing this down.

PNG text is a no-go - preserved for amateurs.

####A grab from your other post:

Is there a way to Undo more than one step? It only allows me to Undo (command+z) one action. Is there a setting somewhere to allow multiple steps?

Beware us of this discussion - it is only one CMD-Z.

The better you know your app and the things web design requires, the less you need this feature. Never use Freeway for layout purposes. Start Freeway after finishing the design process. Swallow the basics which are well documented. Start slow and try to get the gist.

I’m also curious if anyone has experience creating Hype elements and incorporating them into Freeway.

Everything and even more can be embedded in Freeway, it’s just the deal with external resources and the knowledge of “where” to put “what”.

Hype is nice (in fact I don’t like it - but that’s my personal brew) for creating a “specific” part or function of your page. I’d never think about creating an entire project with it. And I doubt, that it is “really” easier.

I use Freeway - for everything.

Even for creating WordPress themes - which is my definition if it comes to a CMS (and in 99% of all cases there is no need for).

My clients have their own hosts, so no option at all.

That, is a bold statement.

[Laughs] Not sure my employers would agree.

Thanks. I was just curious if you had ever heard of it and/or used it.
Webflow has a built-in CMS, but you can also export the code you create so
you can upload it to another server.

We in Germany still have the marketing-mix method, which will mean that my client (the art-director) is responsible for a huge bunch of different disciplines. We still have Print, Direct-Marketing and all the other stuff. So we have the opportunity to write the entire story-board from the very start to the very end. More than often, we end up in a “one-page web design” which doesn’t require any client-side fiddling within content. The story is written - done.

This might differ in many cases from country to country and naturally from business to business.

This audience often talk about CMS, however I never saw within my thousands of post even one project which really needed a CMS. That’s the reason why I give statements like those.

I’m naturally aware that some clients need special features and therefor a bigger machinery. But they’re rare and not part of this audience.
